In another situation, Patrick Brown, a man from Louisiana in the southeastern United States, was released after serving 29 years in prison for alleged rape.
It is understood that the 49-year-old was accused of a rape he did not commit in 1994 and wrongly sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Brown was accused of raping his then 6-year-old stepdaughter, a crime he never committed.
In its report, The Guardian revealed that sexual assault survivors had not testified at Brown’s trial since 2002.
She is said to have repeatedly called for a trial to prove that Brown was not her real attacker.
However, the case was kept secret and was only re-investigated in recent years[carousel_slide id='8496']
